“Biker” means that we have the vision of bringing the Gospel primarily (but not exclusively) to motorcycle enthusiasts.
“Cell Church” means that we desire to bring new Christians into fellowship. A cell church may be a small church that a family started in their home. It may be a Bible study in a donut shop. It may be a small group that meets in a traditional church building. Today churches have started small groups for very many different reasons. There are men’s groups, women’s groups, 12 step groups, grief support groups, and the list goes on and on. We believe in biker small groups.
Let’s say that Joe Evangelist is out on the sidewalk talking about Jesus and handing out tracts. Let’s say that George Heathen falls down on his knees right there in public; asks GOD for forgiveness; and accepts Jesus as his Savior. What then? Should Joe Evangelist say, “Have a nice Christian life. See you later”? Of course not. Christians are responsible for helping newer Christians find fellowship. “Biker Cell Church” means we will form small groups to welcome the biker who gets saved. He may be right out of prison and a week sober, but he will feel that he is at home. He will feel loved. He will feel understood. He will have fellowship with his new Christian family so he won’t be tempted to go and hang out at the bar.
Jesus has commanded us to go out into the world and preach the Gospel. He has instructed us to make disciples and teach them everything that He has taught us. It is great to go out into the highways and byways and tell everyone about Jesus. It doesn’t stop there. When someone becomes a believer, he or she then needs to become a disciple. Without discipleship a person becomes only a marginal Christian with a defeated lifestyle and little or no ministry. We want to be Christians who follow our Lord’s example of morality and public service. The answer is discipleship.
The ministry of the Biker Cell Church was started by a small Christian church in Somersworth NH of the same name. Members of our international ministry may also be members of any Bible-believing church. BCC members may form small groups or independent churches as they wish, as long as they do not violate the teaching of Scripture. If you start a small group or independent church, we leave it to you to run your own ministry. BCC does not have a large government and a million rules. We are a voluntary fellowship of people who love GOD and want to do something to help this hurting world.
